I particularly like "In the Bleak Midwinter", "St. Basil's Hymn," for hammered dulcimer,  and  for singing, "Miss Fogarty's Christmas Cake."

I'm curious, what are other people's favorite Christmas songs that sound good and that they enjoy repeatedly playing?  Mine are Silent Night, O Christmas Tree, Little Drummer Boy, O Holy Night, White Christmas and JIngle Bells.  There's probably a few others that I can't immediately think of.  I particularly like the latter two, White Christmas as it's nice going up a half note at a time on a Hackbrett. I could probably use an addition repertoire, but would like to stay away from some of the more traditional songs and perhaps play something more modern.

Even though Black Friday is a week away, I have put up some Christmas tunes on the Kitchen Musician website.  http://www.kitchenmusician.net.

And for those that get upset with hitting the occasional wrong note, I included a link to the worldâs worst recording of âO Holy Nightâ (Cantique de Noel).  Perhaps a little schadenfreude will make you feel better when you hit a klinker.
